Iconic Supes Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer Land Balmain Campaign

Where Christy Turlington tho? Not to take this iconic moment for granted—the OG supes who were the first to turn modeling into its own brand of outsize celebrity reuniting in a campaign that has nothing to do with 1991 Georges Marciano is a big look.

Voluminous Drapes, Clean Cuts & Some Balmain at the Peoples' Choice Awards

Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards seemed by and large an endless procession of Who?s promoting their forthcoming television pilots on Freeform and 32nd seasons of shows no one over 12 watches on MTV.

Issey Miyake Wants to Dress You Like Rey From Star Wars (Kinda)

All during The Force Awakens, my enthrallment at seeing a woman character kicking ass onscreen was interrupted by thoughts about her fashion and beauty looks that I couldn’t control and found mildly embarrassing.

Fall Hues and Defiant Baby Blues at the British Fashion Awards 

The annual British Fashion Awards took place last night at London’s Coliseum, and it was a flurry of pursed lips, restrained ensembles, and fawning praise for the British fashion “family,” which I am imagining as the kind of family that doesn’t like to give hugs and makes everyone figure out their own dinner.

Sparkly, Silvery Glitz and Solidarity at the 16th Annual Latin Grammys

Thursday night’s Latin Grammy Awards show was incredibly lit—Will Smith performed with Bomba Estéreo, J Balvin and Farruko performed with Major Lazer and Mø, though no one was as en fuego as Banda el Recodo, who collaborated with Wisin.
